Five years ago, Linda Weinstein needed motivation to finish a room in her home. Summoning the support and peer pressure from fellow home and design bloggers, the One Room Challenge™ was born. Today, the challenge takes place every April and October when a group of 20 interior design bloggers are selected to transform a space in six weeks. Lucky for us, they the entire process on their blogs so we can follow along.
The 10th season started on April 6 and we've already noticed a few emerging trends that we can't wait to keep an eye out for this season. Take a look:
The White Color Debate
Is white really a color? The bloggers behind Waiting on Martha and Driven by Decor are setting out to answer that age-old question with designs that will feature white walls and mostly-neutral palettes.
St. Patrick's Day Hangover
The bloggers behind The Pink Clutch and The Curated House featured lush, green velvet couches on their inspiration boards. We're preparing to lust over the results.
Patterns Full of Personality
When it comes to patterns, The Curated House and SKETCH42 are planning on featuring graphic drapes and wallpaper that make a serious statement.
Since design evolves over time, we'll have to wait and see if these trends continue. Feeling inspired? You can join the fun as a guest participant. This week, we recommend you start by making a timeline for all your tasks and creating your own inspiration board. Good luck and may the design force be with you!
